All The Bells

Holiday Extras news's Helen rings the bell at Dungeness to herald the Olympics

To mark the first day of London 2012, Helen Gillilan joined the millions of people across the country to ring to ring a bell to welcome the Olympic Games.

The concept of All The Bells was developed by Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed, and people all over the UK were encouraged to sound a bell for three minutes at 8.12am this morning.

Helen Gillilan, PR manager at Holiday Extras commented: "We thought that it would be a good idea to ring in the Olympics all the way from Dungeness point ... and we do happen to have a really lovely bell!

"The bell used to be how my parent's customers' called for attention at our family business in Cornwall - It was great to have the opportunity to give it a good ring!"
